during the 60s and early 70s showed a consistently rising trend only to be followed by a more or less fluctuating pattern in recent years. Annual per- centage increase in consumption till 1968 69 was much in excess of 20 per cent barring the year of 1965-66 when the growth rate was unusually low at 1.4 per cent.

Women s Employment and Organisation Modes

Modes Pushpa Sundar While the need for more part-time jobs or the scope for self-employment may not be denied, it is arguable whether part-time home-based self-employment is what is best for women and what they themselves would prefer.
